Student Ceramics at the Library

We at Carmichael Library have had a long association with Montevallo's talented student and faculty artists so we're especially excited to present this latest display of student art. Now through Thursday you can see the work of Scott Meyer's student artists in the library foyer.

Students taking Dr. Meyer's advanced ceramics (ART325) class have not only expanded their skills on the pottery wheel, but have also taken a bold approach for students at their level. Writes Dr. Meyer, "It became evident that the group was capable of progressing along a single line of thought for the entire course. Therefore, the pieces displayed here attempt to move a single concept along as a progression from piece to piece." Meyer adds, "Most professional artists work in this fashion, but students at this level in their training typically do not gain the opportunity. This group of young artists is a rare exception."

Thanks to Scott Meyer and his students for allowing us to display their work here in the library. For those who can't come by and see this work we now have photos on our Facebook Fan Page.

Montevallo Organization of Gaming Gets Caught Reading

Photo and graphics by Joel Bullock

Our latest edition of Get Caught Reading highlights another one of Montevallo's student organizations. In just a few short years, the Montevallo Organization of Gaming (MOG) has rapidly grown its ranks. The MOG hosts bi-weekly meetings during which they enjoy a wide variety of diversions, from classic board games to the latest action games for Playstation 3 and X-Box. We caught up with the MOG during one of its Tuesday evening meetings in Comer Hall. As you can see in this photo, the MOG is a fun group of people!

Special thanks to our own Rachel Crisson, who also serves as MOG president, for her assistance in scheduling our latest installment of Get Caught Reading.
